WOODBURY - Long Island residents working for the Red Cross locally are heading down south to help areas that have seen mass flooding. "It's one thing to turn on the TV and see what's happening - but having seen with my own eyes ? really, really hits home," says Sam Kille, of the American Red Cross of Metro New York. Kille just returned to Long Island after spending a week down south helping people affecting by the Mississippi River flooding. Craig Cooper, with the Suffolk Red Cross, is leaving tonight to go to Baton Rogue, La. He says more than at any other time, the Red Cross needs donations. "It is a time where we really do need Americans to support the Red Cross for the work we're doing here in the United States," Cooper says.
